>>> next, curtis argues that authors christopher hitchens are misguided in their fate that science will eventually provide all the answers we have regarding the nature of human beings and the physical world. he says the religion verses scions debate left out the role that philosophy, art and culture have played in shaping the way that we understand the world. during this event hosted by immelt phill house mr. white is a conversation with lewis, former editor of harper's magazine and current at the turn of the quarterly. this is an hour. >> i am a long time at meijer on the editorial advisory board and the quarterly. i turned to him for wisdom which often comes over me and i'm going to let him begin by explaining. we want them to talk as much as possible. and so, if you can set up the premise of the book and then i have a few questions the last few if the silence falls. >> well, from what i can tell so far, one of the things the people what their current leaders, journalists want to know why i decided to write this book a seeing eye and a novelist and not a science writer. the answe

disconnect that i was alluding to earlier between how science deals with this question and how lawyers deal with this question is that you actually get a fundamental disconnect between the two systems. so you mentioned that lack of emotional control or lack of ability to control your preferences might lead to insanity, but, in fact, in most jurisdictions as you know, that's not true. after hanky was acquitted under the american law institute test because he could not control his behavior, congress in most state jurisdictions changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly committed. so what we have is a fundamen

it's a joke and where's the punchline, and then you figure, well, it's science fiction, it's a million miles away, and that's why on the releases i put out to my colleagues here in the congress i've actually attached copies of the patent itself not for any reason other than to show them this is real. i didn't make this up, i didn't make up these quotes or these examples. this is directly out of an official patent filed by a major international corporation. so i've gotten some fair response on this. the problem is a lot of this information even to members of congress, they just don't know it. i think you could walk down the street today and tap the shoulders of a hundred people on any street in america, and my guess is 95-99% of them don't know that their car probably has one of these black boxes in it right now or what that information is or how it could be used against them. therefore, until people know it, they really can't have an honest discussion about it and exactly what this society wants. >> host: what about when it comes to cell phones or tablets and the tracking? have you loo
